What does it cost to build a wind turbine? Capital costs for wind projects are $1,500 - $2,000 per kilowatt of nameplate capacity. How does the cost of wind energy compare to other energy sources? Wind-generated electricity has become more economical to produce in the past 10 years, dropping from as much as 30 cents per kilowatt-hour to 4.5 to 7.5 cents, making it more competitive with other energy sources. The cost to develop and build a wind energy facility is approximately $1.3 million to $1.7 million per megawatt, compared to a cost for gas-fired energy generation of $800,000 per megawatt.

How much do wind farms cost?

In 2009 the costs to install a wind farm in the US were approximately $2,000/kW of nameplate capacity or $2,000,000/MW. Turbine prices in 2010 are dropping. Construction costs are also dropping. The result, based on precedent transactions, is an all-in installed cost of $1500/kw nameplate or $1.5m/mw. Wind farm sizes vary. The majority of wind farms installed in the last 10 years in the US range from 50mw to 150mw, implying an all-in installed cost of $75m to $225m per wind farm.
